J-pop and metal outfit Babymetal have been supporting rock icons Red Hot Chili Peppers on their current UK tour, and last night the young band were joined on stage by RHCP’s very own sticksman Chad Smith, for a medley of Judas Priest tracks Painkiller and Breaking The Law
Following the performance — during which Smith’s face was painted black and white like Babymetal’s backing band — the Chili Peppers drummer presented lead vocalist Su-Metal with a cake for her 20th birthday, and led the crowd in singing the Happy Birthday song to her.
This wasn’t the first time Babymetal have covered Judas Priest. Earlier this year the band even performed Breaking The Law with Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford.
